Volunteer for Bike to Work Day 2016

May is National Bike Month, and Bike to Work Day, this year on May 12, 2016, is our biggest event of the year. We can’t make it happen without your help! We have a few open volunteer positions to support Bike to Work Day and other Bike Month Activities. Volunteer positions available: • Bike to Work Day Coordinators: We have an opening for two Bike to Work Day Coordinators who can help out weekly with poster shipments, t-shirt inventory and shipments, and other general Bike to Work Day and SVBC assistance as needed.

This position will require a commitment on May 12, 2016 from 8am-3pm. • Energizer Station Map Creator: Do you have experience with Google Maps, or another GIS mapping software?

Encourage people to join SVBC by buying a...

Tell the Super Bowl Host Committee you support bike parking

Tell the Super Bowl Host Committee you support bike parking

Free valet bicycle parking, which is available at all 49ers home games and most events at Levi’s Stadium, will not be offered at Super Bowl 50. In fact, no option for arriving by bike is mentioned on the Super Bowl 50 website. We feel this is a wasted opportunity to provide and promote sustainable transportation at the most-watched television broadcast in the nation. If you agree, please sign our petition urging Super Bowl organizers to support biking to this and future events. We will send the signed petition to organizers on February...
